Never. Just kidding. Sometimes, when I drink more than two glasses it opens up my appetite. However, most of the time, the wine is fine.

What does sometimes, but I push on mean?

What happens when wine interfers with your weight loss? How many glasses of wine causes the interference?

What do you mean "I push on"? What do you do to correct the interference?

Thank you,

Maybe it is the word itself, "MAINTENANCE" that gets us all in trouble. Maintenance lulls a lot of us, including me, into thinking that we have made our goal and do not have to be aggressive in monitoring our consumption. Such is not the case! Esp. with those challenged by weight gain. I think once we have reached our weight goal we should go into a "Monitoring" phase where we still have exercise and consumption guidelines to meet. We need to be "vigilant" at all times.

I don't think the wine has interefered, but the food and cheese that I eat with it does.

I need to start tracking my food better. I have gained 6 lbs the last few months. I was so dedicated, met my goal, and now for some reason my eating has been out of control.

Maintenance is very hard for me.

I love myself a good Cab!!!! I admit if I open a bottle I drink it. I can easily drink a bottle myself. I need to cut this out on my weekends and I know I'd be in good shape if I did that.

I've really enjoyed reading this discussion. I too am a wine drinker. I usually have 2 glasses/day: 1 while making dinner, 1 with dinner; I kind of top up so it might be 2.5 glasses. I allow for it in my calorie count. I am weighing tomorrow morning and I did have the thought if I'm not down maybe I have to curtail the amount of wine. I have really revved up the exercise though; water aerobics 1 hr 2-3X/wk and walking the golf course - a 4 hr walk with a couple tough uphill climbs at least twice/wk. I like red wine the best. The rest of the time I am riding a stationary bike and doing strength training from the SP fitness page. I don't want to be skinny just healthy and look and feel good.

I really like wine, but unfortunately I have to limit myself during weightloss. BUT I give myself one day of the week (usually Saturday) where I can have two small glasses (7 oz) throughout the evening (making sure to track and measure it of course), and it is like a nice treat for another week of eating healthy and exercising.

Added benefit...since I've cut it out of my diet mostly, those two glasses give me a nice little buzz :)

A small glass of a nice cab and a square of Lindt 85% chocolate is my favorite treat. I make sure it fits within my daily calories, carbs and fat.

I have just joined Sparkpeople, but I did lose 60 pounds a couple years ago without cutting out the wine.

(I'm here to get focused, start tracking what I eat and do and lose the rest that needs to go ;-)

I have two glasses of wine a night !! Doctors orders ! and I have still lost 12.5 kilos since joining Sparks .. it helps to relax you and the antioxidants are really good for your heart! of course it goes without saying, it should be a good red!.

I count any beverage I drink, including teas. One or two glasses won't hinder your weight loss, but if you get carried away (which is easy with some good wine) it will make you sluggish and your system will work slower to burn it off. But, one night of wild partying won't sabotage your weight loss goals. It'll just hold you up a day, depending on your hang over emoticon

If you're bored then you're boring.

I count in the wine. I eat lower carbed fruits and veggies when i have wine also I eat very little red meat as it is higher in calories ad takes me longer to burn it off.

Drinking wine interferes with weight loss if I have more than one glass. If I have more than one glass, all my plans just fly out the window and I say "what the heck" as I head to the kitchen. I've got to be really careful. And I should probably invest in a wine saving device so I don't feel guilty about letting an open bottle sit in the fridge.

The first dietician I met came in the hospital room in black leather, heels and a whip. She said no, no, no,listing all my favorite foods. My wife was amening every no. Totally wrote her off, didn't help me though. My daughter is now a dietician and says that I don't have to give up non-toxic foods, just remember portion control and daily goals-plan ahead for wine, beer, ice cream/yogurt. I've lost 35lbs

Kristi - add the calories to your daily totals to see the impact and be honest.

Limiting the wine early in the lifestyle change will help increase weight loss.

Then bring it back in over time.

Hello all I'm new to this team and I was just wondering if drinking a couple times a week is ok. I love to have a few glasses of wine on my days off and I don't drink the rest of the week is this ok or should I stop completely? Thanks for your support!

In answer to the basic question of this board: Doesn't everything? LOL I'm new to the team - been sparking about three, three and a half weeks now. WW was doing nothing for me! I'm down a pound so far - weigh-in is tomorrow. I generally have two or three glasses of white between the time I get home from work and dinner, then a glass of red with dinner. I created a "beverages meal" on my nutrition page, and just copy it from one day to the next, subtracting or adding (seldom) whenever necessary. It's the start of my calorie count for the day. I don't suppose that's the way it should be done, but wine brought hubby and me together over six years (I tell people I let him chase me 'til I caught him) and I can't bear to give it up! P.S. Thanks, Resoneb, I found this team through your sparkpage! Laurie

Three good nights, Thurs, Mon, Tues - no snacking no wine - good execrise. Hit my new low this morning. Less than 10 pounds to go.

Will verify by being good the next two nights and then a little fun over the weekend. Between snacking and wine - 3 days = about 1500 calories saved.

I read an article today about identifying bad choices I make and then have a plan for when those situations arise. So, for the candy I like to suck on while I am painting, I will instead subsitute something much lower calorie or have a nice hot cup of delicious tea with me.

Ah yes...remaining vices. This contributes to my weight loss difficulties much more than the wine does. I have to stop sucking on 30 calorie hard candies. Sometimes I have 8 in a day. Now how bad is that???

It slows my progress but is my only remaining vice. I am going to go to Friday and Saturday only for a while to 1) see how I do and 2) to get through the current plateau.
I have managed to change so many things - this is the last one.

In addition to the calories I snack too much (on healthy foods) and this adds to the calorie issues.

I started buying the small single serving bottles of wine. They are often more expensive, but they both measure how much I drink and I am not tempted to over drink as that would require opening another bottle. I do find that alcohol calories have an impact and even when I stay in my calorie goal range, I have to adjust even more for a glass of wine or a beer.

To prevent oxidation in an open bottle of wine you can:

1- pour the remainder into a smaller bottle with a cap/stopper.

2- Add glass marbles to the bottle to bring the wine level up to the neck, thus pushing the air out. Again use a stopper.

3- Purchase a CO2 injector wich will displace the air in the bottle while you isert the stopper.

I have been loving everyone's posts! I, too, love wine. I specifically factor it in to my meal planning, so I don't think it is slowing me down in my weight loss. My eating the past couple of months, however, is a different story, lol. But life is good and a toast of wine to cap off a good day is always lovely.

Happy New Year and best wishes for healthy living to you all!

Cheers,
Heidi

It does for me, but I'm a T2 diabetic with insulin resistance. Even then, my endo wants me to drink a 2 to 3 oz pour of red every night, to combat heart disease. Both times in my life when I lost a significant amt. of weight, I was off alcohol (and bread) for several weeks. I've gone off bread/starchy carbs- but kept the wine-and haven't had the same results. I guess every body chemistry is different. I don't think I'll ever be able to completely give up wine. I may have to settle for a slightly higher goal weight, and enjoy my vino!

No, I actually don't believe it does. I reached my goal and I never stopped drinking wine. My husband and I drink red wine almost every night. emoticon

I usually just eliminate some fruit or snack to make up for it...but I will NOT give up my wine for anything!!

I'm sure it holds my weight loss back. I drink my 2 glasses at night, count it in my tracker and am within my calorie range. However, when I read about eating clean, I know these empty alcohol calories cannot be helping me. I think of the real food I could be eating instead to nourish my body. Sometimes, I feel guilty. Sometimes I remember the health benefits of red wine.

But, what can I say? I love wine.

For me it adds extra calories and makes me more likely to eat things I shouldn't eat. I used to drink red wine every day, but now I save it for special occasions and I budget my calories accordingly.

Yes - drains my determination not to snack and adds empty calories. Balancing this with my passion for good red wines. Maybe someday I will quit but not yet.

I can usually have a glass or two a couple of times a week. I just have to plan for it and eat especially good during the day so I have that leeway at night.
I am a red wine drinker, so I did a web search for the calories in red wine and averaged it out from what I found....I then just created a General Red Wine entry and use that.
I'm on track losing two pounds a week, so it can't be hurting me too much.

Goals & Reward:
190 - Start ** Done!**
180 - New Belt ** Done!**
170 - New Top or Shoes ** Done!**
160 - Brand New Jeans!
150 New Leather jacket
140 - Shopping Spree!!!!
135 Who cares what the reward is, Ill be healthy and fabulous!!

Do you use the calorie counter? I looked up wine and it had basically red, white and rose, but I know there is more to it than that. How many calories do you count?

If I am logging my food it doesn't because then I remember to cut something else or do a little more cardio. To me wine is life, part of that is my husband writes about wine and we receive quite a bit that we drink so he can review it. We drink it almost every day. I don't drink soda or most other calorie laden drinks so it all works out.

Down 32 pounds after 13 weeks.
Red wine 12 oz avg 5 times a week.
Eat more than desired occassionally (maybe frequently) when wine consumed but stick to healthy foods. It slows the weight loss down but is a good reward for exercise.

That said - to hit my goal weight I will need to restrict the wine intake to weekends.

For me I think it does. I have guests over we bring out the cheese, crackers, sasage, dips. I tend to nibble just drinking and talking.

For me living my best life means taking the time to enjoy the things I enjoy, especially the small pleasures. Like previous posters, I'll give up some things in my pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, but I'm not giving up on everything I enjoy. Will I cut back - yes, but not eliminate!

I'm still plugging away at this. I've been **pretty good* about only drinking wine on the weekends. I also did LOTS of cardio last week-- joined a new gym. My sweetie wants me to take spinning classes with him. Yikes! I want some progress!!!!

I do have a glass every few days as a reward for my hard work and progress. Life is too short and I have dumped the sugar for the health but you will have to take my coffee and my wine from my cold dead hands

I think for me it's part habit, but mostly there are certain things in life that I truly enjoy, wine being one of them.

I was still able to lose another lb this week! and I did not totally stick to the "no wine during the work week" program. But, like Dancepartner, I did increase the cardio.

I know what you mean, but I am REALLY sick of knocking myself out with works and not getting anywhere.

I've been doing more intense cardio this week (after a bad weekend of lazing around). After evening workouts, I have no craving for a glass of wine when I come home, but when I come home after work and start to cook, that's when I pour a glass. I think this is part habit and part low blood sugar. Any thoughts on this?

Ha, I did the same thing. He said "Try no wine for a month." I fell off the bench and said, "What for?!?!" Ugh. I know what's causing my plateau, but I swear...life's too short, right? Or is that just the excuse?

Live, laugh, love.

Well, I fell off the consistency wagon last weekend. Jumping back on now. My trainer says, "Give up wine for a month and see what happens." I was complaining to her about not losing.
